Petition: Samuel Merry (17 Nov 1992)

Mr Phil Gallie: The background to this petition was the brutal killing of Samuel Merry, a constituent in Ayr, earlier this year. The sentences passed on his killers were widely perceived to be inexplicably lenient. Immediately thereafter, some 3,000 or 4,000 people in Ayr signed a petition prepared by the family, but its format was not acceptable to the House. Accepting that, a new petition was prepared and...

Orders of the Day — Opposition Day: Arms Exports (Iraq) (23 Nov 1992)

Mr Phil Gallie: Does the hon. Gentleman at least acknowledge that Ministers were under pressure at that time from Opposition Members who were keen to maintain their constituents' jobs and constituency businesses? Is not he aware of the pressure brought to bear on Ministers by Opposition Members?

Petitions: Rosyth Dockyard (25 Nov 1992)

Mr Phil Gallie: I, too, compliment the hon. Member for Dunfermline, West (Ms. Squire) on her speech about Rosyth dockyard. I am grateful to her for allowing me and my hon. Friend the Minister to participate in the debate. I was an apprentice at Rosyth dockyard. My home town was Dunfermline. The hon. Lady commented on the value of those apprenticeships to young people nowadays, and I endorse every word that...

Petitions: Rosyth Dockyard (25 Nov 1992)

Mr Phil Gallie: Does my hon. Friend concede that, if Rosyth were selected, its experience and knowledge are sufficient to maintain the fleet without the movement of resources from elsewhere, but if Devonport were selected expertise and knowledge would have to be moved there from Rosyth to maintain the Trident submarines?

Public Expenditure (Scotland) (2 Dec 1992)

Mr Phil Gallie: I share with my right hon. Friend the despair that he must feel at times at the Opposition's constant gloom during statements. Once again, he has confounded—[HON. MEMBERS: "Question."]—he has confounded all of their expectations by increasing—[HON. MEMBERS: "Question."]

Public Expenditure (Scotland) (2 Dec 1992)

Mr Phil Gallie: Is my right hon. Friend aware that there is great joy in Scotland at the continued drive towards the uniform business rate and the good use to which the £340 million mentioned in the Chancellor's statement is to be put? Will he join me in reminding Opposition Members that it was a Conservative Government who introduced the idea of the enterprise trusts in Scotland? Does he agree that there...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Heritage: Windsor Castle (Fire) (7 Dec 1992)

Mr Phil Gallie: Does my right hon. Friend recognise the impassioned pleas of the hon. Member for Bolsover (Mr. Skinner)? Does he recognise also the pressures on the public purse? Will he think about what the hon. Member for Bolsover has said and consider privatisation?

Opposition Day: Unemployment (8 Dec 1992)

Mr Phil Gallie: The hon. Gentleman has said much about investment and earlier he spoke of a young man who had worked for Rolls-Royce. Is he aware that the advances of modern technology have meant that companies such as Rolls-Royce can purchase machines that can do the jobs of 20 or 30 men over a 24-hour period? Does he appreciate that problem, which is also a problem of investment?

Opposition Day: Unemployment (8 Dec 1992)

Mr Phil Gallie: On a point of order, Madam Speaker. The hon. Gentleman referred to the use of child labour in Colombia to produce coal that is exported. That statement is absolutely untrue and I ask that he withdraw it.

Fishing Industry (9 Dec 1992)

Mr Phil Gallie: Does my hon. Friend agree that the Government have outflanked Europe with the Sea Fish (Conservation) Bill? We are now one step ahead. Does he agree that that Bill will kill the current proposal from Europe?

Fishing Industry (9 Dec 1992)

Mr Phil Gallie: rose—

Fishing Industry (9 Dec 1992)

Mr Phil Gallie: My speech will be a great deal shorter than the conclusion of the speech of the hon. Member for Great Grimsby (Mr. Mitchell). I made my maiden speech on Second Reading of the Sea Fish (Conservation) Bill, and on that occasion the hon. Gentleman followed me. He is indeed the life and "sole" of the House of Commons. I had not intended to speak in the debate, but the hon. Member for Edinburgh,...

Fishing Industry (9 Dec 1992)

Mr Phil Gallie: I am talking about the Bill and about the amendment passed in the other place—[Interruption.]

Fishing Industry (9 Dec 1992)

Mr Phil Gallie: I accept that point, Madam Deputy Speaker, and I shall come closer to home and discuss the interests of the west coast and the implications of the Bill for that area. We are discussing European proposals for quotas, but this year's quotas have been an absolute shambles because they were set early in the year and then changed. I ask my hon. Friend the Minister to ensure that that does not...

Fishing Industry (9 Dec 1992)

Mr Phil Gallie: I thought that my hon. Friend looked younger than that. It is still a long time compared with the six months during which I have been dealing with the problem. I see fishermen as small business men who have invested their all in their capital project. They need to use that cash to earn their living. They must have fish to catch, but I recognise the Government's concern about conservation...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Dec 1992)

Mr Phil Gallie: Is my right hon. Friend aware that yesterday 9,000 Rangers fans travelled to Germany at a cost of £300 per head to witness Rangers' magnificent win over Moscow? Does he agree that on that basis there is light at the end of the recessionary tunnel?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Scottish Homes Budget (16 Dec 1992)

Mr Phil Gallie: Is my hon. Friend aware that the number of houses below tolerable standard in Scotland fell yet again in the past year, this time by about 4 per cent? As it is Conservative policy to improve and not to demolish, is not that good value for public expenditure? Is he further aware that the remaining below tolerable standard houses are on the private ownership side of the housing market? Will he...

Business of the House (16 Dec 1992)

Mr Phil Gallie: Bearing in mind today's tragic bombings in Oxford street, would my right hon. Friend consider announcing a debate to address the shameful situation in which people residing within our island seem to have no regard at all for the welfare, life or limb of others?
